The USDA Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) works with private landowners to advance conservation on their lands. This voluntary program currently comprises over 20 million acres making it an extremely important component of conservation in America. Management actions taken on enrolled lands include augmenting native vegetation for pollinators, providing habitat for grassland plants and animals, increasing biodiversity, reducing soil erosion, and improving water quality.

CBI is working with USDA to improve efficiency and effectiveness of the program as it strives to expand enrollment in the coming years. Working in a number of pilot states (Mississippi, Kansas, Colorado, Washington, Nebraska, and the Dakotas), CBI will be focused on the following tasks.
